Tifway 419 is a hybrid Bermudagrass developed in Tifton, Georgia, at The University of Georgia’s Coastal Plain Experiment Station.  Tifway became the most widely distributed warm-season turf in the United States and has been the most widely used Bermudagrass in Texas for decades.  Tifway is a fine-bladed, full sun grass and, when consistently mowed low, develops a low, dense turf that makes it popular for sporting applications and home lawns. As Texas has experienced population growth and strains on water supplies, the demand for Tifway has risen at new home build sites due to its higher drought tolerance than St. Augustinegrass.
